2010 X5 35d Bumper Cover Replacement

Front bumper cover scratched. It is not painted, but the stock black textured material.

Weighing replacing the front bumper cover 51117172402 on my own ($150 +time) vs. body shop ($1500 or $500 deductible + insurance claim).

In their estimate, they include removing both wheel flares.

They also include a Repair kit 51117172450 and painting because they say that the front plastic grills are glued in and need to be painted and replaced. One of the grills got detached in the accident and doesn't appear to have been glued.

Two questions:

1. Is removing the wheel flares necessary to replace the front bumper cover?

2. Do I need to replace the plastic grills with the repair kit or can I reuse existing?
